Dean s getting married tomorrow, and nothing s going to stop the crazy full-on stag party organised by his mates not even the recent zombie apocalypse. The six guys, and a stripper they ve hired, take their debauchered fun to a top secret military base to play Zomball like Paintball, except that you get to shoot captured zombies. What begins as a fun but gory game, soon turns into a fight for their lives, as the zombies turn on them. Will the hapless stag party survive... and make it to the church on time?

Parental Guide: F-bomb, nudity (Lily Brown?)
Obviously it is all going to go horribly wrong, even if the people behind it all don't have a Secret Agenda, as it's pretty clear that they do in the opening minutes.
Sadly some of the script and some of the performances make you realise, once more, just how great the original, and equally low budget, Night of the Living Dead is.
But the ride is quite fun and if you've seen a lot of zombie films, you've seen a lot that are a lot worse than this one.
Oh, although there are some good extras on the dsic, there are no subtitles, grrr.
Update: I've added a star, making it four, because I've continued thinking about it since watching it and it is better than an awful lot of zombie films. If you asked me which I wanted to see again, the Dawn of the Dead remake or this, it'd be this nearly all of the time, for example.
Anyway, this is a reasonable zombie movie with a few funny twists. There are a couple of good performances and an interesting plot.
The story involves a typical stag party involving drinking, a stripper and a unique version of `paintball'. Enter the zombies as part of an innocent game. But things quickly go wrong.
I won't spoil the plot but you can imagine the chaos that results. There are some interesting areas such as talking zombies, thinking zombies and a nice subplot with the stripper and groom.
I enjoyed this obvious b-movie. You know what you are going to get. Don't go here for classic dialogue and Hollywood standards but it's still a solid British zombie flick, with a hint of Shaun of the Dead about and some excellent zombie make up...
Potential viewers of 'Stag Night Of The Dead' could be forgiven for thinking that this is yet another zombie film on the lookout for a gimmick. In fact, this low budget, highly satisfactory British horror has enough laughs, gore and nice little touches to set it apart from the flock.
The plot, concerning a stag party deciding that Zomball, a sort of paintball involving zombies, would be the perfect climax to their fun. Some nice satirical touches here, as the living dead, victims of a Bird Flu pandemic, are being used as a money making enterprise by a shady American businessman. Anyway, it all starts off fine, with the boys having quite a ball shooting up the shambling dead. However, when the hunters become the hunted, things aren't quite so enjoyable anymore. The best man is revealed as a coward and a love rat, one of the party falls in love with a very comely zombie lass, and soon everyone is fighting for their lives.
The characters are on the whole well rounded and likeable. There is one big exception. Ronnie. Ah yes, Ronnie, possibly the most annoying character to grace a British horror film. However, once he recieves a love bite and becomes an unofficial spokesman for the Zombie Party, Ronnie improves a lot.
The acting is very good, the standouts being Sophie Lovell Anderson as novice stripper Candy and Doug Grant as potential father in law Gordon.
The main thing is that 'Stag Night Of The Dead' is just so bloody enjoyable. The zombie film needn't worry, for as long as films like this continue to be made, there will be plenty of life in the old, rotting corpse. Plenty of extras on this release, including an informative 'making-of' featurette, and the highlight for me, the 'bollocks' out take.
5 out of 5 for the whole package, a great entertainment.
